    Anyone here pick up this dock? I'm planning on picking up this dock but I would like to get some feedback on this dock. I tried google but I couldn't find any reviews on the iPhone 5 dock.

    Yes, but it does lift up slightly. My guess is once the lightning connector loosens up a bit it will be fine.

    I have this dock and I really love it. Sadly with the iPhone 5 it does not slide out as easily as the 30 pin does. But it's heavy and I wont knock it over when I wake up in the morning.

    Also as you can see by the youtube video the phone kind of tilts at a slight angle when viewed from above. This happens if the phone does not hit the pads evenly on the back.

    The pads are reversible if you have a case on or not. You pull it out and flip it over. I use the elago slim case, and the pad dosent come out far enough (on the non-case side of the pad). I stuffed some electrical tape in the slot behind the pad to fill it more, so my phone hits evenly on the pad and rests even.

    I know you would think with the price that you pay for this dock it would be prefect yada yada yada. It's pricey but it's fine with a little tweek and it's good to support a kickstarter.

    This also works on most cases, but I've only tried it with the elago slim and the speck grip.
